wednesday morning i woke up to rain outside. but that didn't slow me down.
i have made many trips to atlanta in the past, however this trip was far from what i am accustomed to.
driving through tiger town starbucks is a trip ritual. hazelnut skinny latte please. and as the rain sprinkled into my car window as i grabbed my coffee from the barista, i realized, this time, i was going home.
i now am settled in beautiful bustling atlanta. i have enjoyed getting moved in and am growing more used to the "you say 20 mins but me 45 mins" away. i am learning to parallel park better. and it's only been three days.
in other news, i graduated college! finally i am able to say those words. after the four year of writing this blog, there has never been a post that school was not looming overhead, barking at my brain, waiting to be done after i made a little post. my creativity and whitty juices all flowed into that mass called education.
now. i get to learn. and do.
i also got an iphone. which has been remarkable. a struggle sometimes to pay attention to other things going on, but it's still new... so i am allowed right?
now that i have an awesome phone that takes incredible pictures, my life is all of the sudden more documented for everyone and their mother (literally in some cases) to view it. so here is my life recently according to my iphone (this will be a traditional saturday post... all the cool blogs do it)
i have successfully run twice in atlanta so far. will and i went to piedmont park today to run and he (as expected) was much faster than i am. we enjoyed the time together, none the less and made about 5.2 total miles in the may heat. the wind was our friend, however.
a special shout out to the lovely fender mandolin that brian gave me. i am learning chords at least one a day. i really like it. it is good for my baby hands and squatty fingers to play. and not to mention the fact that Ellie Holcomb uses onc. which makes me feel that much more capable of mastering the instrument.
brian told be i couldn't come back until i was the master mandolin player of the year. which, might be a stretch, but we have hope.
OH YEAHHH!I got the summer internship at NightLight! my whole mind has not wrapped itself around the fact that the passion the Lord has given me in this life if going to see itself in the light this summer. i will be blogging a lot about what i will be doing later. i have some emotional feelings right now, and i am learning a lot through the books i am reading for the adventure. if you want info about this organization in Atlanta, look them up here!
did i mention how happy i am to be so close to this guy right here?? because i am. enough said.
sitting here at this desk in this new room is a little odd. mostly, because this is now where i stay, not where i visit.
part of me was scared to move here. part of me was a little apprehensive. part of me was pumped.
now, i am more excited than anything.
i have been given grace to proceed in life. the Lord has shown a little glimpse into His will for my life.
today, i saw a slice of my future. not planning on it, but i saw it regardless.
and the Lord showed off.
my heart leaps inside my chest when he pats me on the back and tells me good job.
when he gives me a nudge in the right direction.
i prayed for the opportunity. he gave me a desire, and a calling, now he is equipping me.
and he is showing me His LOVE through another.
a picture of HIS LOVE.
how could you ask for more?
you can't. because there is nothing else but HIS LOVE.
well, that is a significant update. i look forward to posting more about my adventures through post-grad life.
get outside today. green> screen (outside is green...screen is like a tv or computer... ya digg?)
peace and love. mb.
